Top Ten Tuesday

Posted October 18, 2016 by Nicky in General / 9 Comments

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is about Characters I’d Name A Child/Dog/Cat/Car/Etc After! I’m going to depart from pure book-fandom for this…

  1. Hawkeye, from the MCU. My phone is Hawkeye, actually.
  2. EDI, from Mass Effect. My main computer.
  3. Jarvis, from the MCU. My last ereader.
  4. Friday, from the MCU. My current netbook.
  5. Glyph, from Mass Effect. My current ereader.
  6. Hulk, from the MCU. My bunny. Who is a girl, and was actually named by my wife.
  7. Sir, after John Winchester from Supernatural. I don’t know why, but… I give you, our washing machine.
  8. Paragon, from Robin Hobb’s Liveship Traders books. I figured I needed something that weathered storms and wasn’t trash at the first setback, so I had a computer called Paragon for a while. It was the longest-lasting machine I’ve had.
  9. Steve-bear and Tony-bear, named after Steve Rogers and Tony Stark from the MCU. These are my Build A Bears. And yes, they have the outfits, although I have misplaced Steve-bear’s shield.
  10. Helen Hippo, from the Spot books. This one is ancient history, comparatively — the teddy who has been with me since I was two days old is named after Helen! And is also a hippo.

I promise I’ll take the next list more seriously. Maybe.

  1. I have a huge pile of Build A Bear monkeys, named after US Presidents, TV shows or names from different countries ie Clinton, Jackson, Jefferson, Lincoln, Truman, Miguel, Carlos, Dougal, Dylan, Dante…plus my Bear Factory monkeys Pacito, Luigi, Takeshi and Michiko. I like interesting names for my children! My Kindle is called Maurice after the Closet Monster in RL Naquin’s Monster Haven books.

  2. I name my possessions as well. My computer’s name is Viktor (after Victor Vale from Vicious), and my husband’s computer is Loial (after a character from Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series). I’ve also named some of my cacti, our washing machine (Hubert, no namesake), and my kids’ toys (since they’re too young to name them themselves). 🙂
